Axial Dose Profile in Head CT Scan Using a 140 kV X-Ray Beam

Arnaldo Prata Mourão and Fernanda Stephanie Santos

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: December 24, 2022

Computed Tomography (CT) has been widely used in radiological imaging diagnosis, but it generates higher doses in patients. The growing demand for tomography exams has generated concern in the scientific community in increasing the population dose generated by this technique. For this reason, it is important to know the dose distribution with a view to optimizing acquisition protocols. In this work, a standard head CT phantom made of PMMA with 16 cm in diameter was used coupled to cylindrical pl...

Dose Evaluation of Head CT Scans Using Phantom for Optimization Protocols

Fernanda Stephanie Santos and Arnaldo Prata Mourão

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: December 24, 2022

Computed Tomography (CT) scans promote a higher dose deposition than conventional radiology exams. These tests contribute significantly to the increase in the patient and collective dose, being a public health concern worldwide. There is a great need to improve protocols to seek lower doses while maintaining the diagnostic image quality....

Radiation Protection Efforts in Restricting Exposure to Scattered Radiation Based on Room Analysis

Dian Kusuma Wardhani, Rurie Ratna Shantiningsih and Rellyca Sola Gracea

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: December 23, 2022

The purpose of this narrative review is to describe effective efforts in radiation protection to limit scattered radiation exposure in terms of room analysis and to find out the difference in the effect of retaining wall thickness in limiting the scatter radiation dose. Scattered radiation is part of radiation that deviates from the radiation source....

The Use of Radiation Attenuating Gloves Reduces Exposure to Scatter Radiation but not Direct Radiation

Jas Virk, MD, Muhammad Nadeem, MBBS and Charles Chung MD

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: July 23, 2022

Diagnostic and interventional procedures are commonly performed under fluoroscopic guidance. The use of radiation attenuating gloves to reduce direct and scatter radiation to the hands of clinicians has been controversial. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the use of radiation attenuating gloves reduce direct and/or scatter radiation dose to the hands of the operator....
